    Well worth it!

    The program was very intense, and provided me with a great foundation for the world of web development. The teacher and TA's were super helpful - I never had to wait to have my questions answered. It felt very relevant to the real world.

    Don't be intimidated

    I was very concerned before going into this that it would be too much to absorb in 2 months time, that I wouldn't be able to keep up or that it would be too stressful.

    Do not be intimidated by this. You will be surrounded by a cohort who is going through the exact same thing as you and the comraderie you will develop will get you through it. DeCode provides supportive T.A's every step of the way to get you over humps and over all the fun of problem solving and the reward of succes...

    Best decision ever made

    When I was searching for a bootcamp, I wanted to find something that would match my goals which were to learn the industry standard technologies and find a job as a web developer. That's why I chose Decode and I have no regrets. In only 2 months, I have a solid understanding of JavaScript, React, Node, and Express! Less than 2 weeks after graduation I found a job as a Junior Software Developer! The teaching staff are very professional and helpful. They know the ma...

    Learn to code, code to live

    If you've found your way here while prospecting your application to DecodeMTL - you've likely got that in common with every graduating student from the program.

    Know this; you'll have an awesome supporting cast. The class I was apart of was the very first cohort with their new instructor, Jacques, who has a decorated academic and professional background in computer science. He is extremely patient throughout his lectures and isn't afraid to stop at any point to make sure no stude...

    Intense and rewarding

    tl;dr: Decode is great. Do it.

    Want to learn to code useful things? Decode is for you. Want to understand how web technologies work? Decode guides you quite far down that path. Want to specialize an a particular field or technology, well, you'll need to go beyond what Decode offers, and don't expect to come away a senior programmer. But you will come away with all of the fundamentals you'll need, a solid understanding of web technologies in general (and a deeper understanding of ...

    Worth Every Penny

    About Staff:

    - Very caring staff: The owner, the instructor (Jacques), TAs (Luke, Nadim, Jordan) are all very attentive and helpful.

    Lot's of work but worth it!

    I graduated in late August 2017 and found a paid internship as a software developer in November 2017. I only started learning JavaScript 2 months prior to joining, placing me at a very beginner level.    The course is difficult, you won't have time for anything else really for 8 weeks. Significant information is thrown your way and you will feel frustration and confusion. You just have to put in the time and things will eventually fall into place. I would dedi...

    The curriculum of the bootcamp is well structured and everything falls into place on time for the demo day if you gave your 110% throughout the course!

    Most bang-for-buck educational experience I've ever had

    I have attended university, grad school, community night classes, and community college yet none of these 'formal' institutions have offered the level of education I received at decodeMTL. Now my whole conception of formal education and learning has been invalidated and I'll have to think about what I want to do with my future kids' education...

    Note that I have approximately one year of coding experience before coming to decodeMTL (SQL, HTML/CSS, frontend JS, Java. Perl).

    If you absolutely need a career change immediately, do it. If not, save your money and learn yourself.

    As the title says, truly think hard about this decision before you make it. I would only recomend this bootcamp to those who are in desperate need of a career change. It will give you the tools to get the bare minimum done and it will teach you how to learn on your own once you're out. However, if you are not desperate, do NOT go through with it. Also, remember that this is just my exerience for the most part. I have gotten feedback, befor...

    Incredible experience

    The instructors and admin staff at decode are really great. They offer support from start to the end on every aspect of learning, job search and even more. They have an approach based on learning by doing and if you put the effort into it, it will pay off. Ziad the lead instructor is a great teacher capable of diving in details but also explaining from a high level perspective. Kevin the admin has an incredible networking experience and will make you employable in a couple of meetings! Ove...
